Lochi's Little Corner of T&A

I didn’t get a chance to throw this up because of traveling and in-access. I finished a thing a while ago for the Vertebrae Anthology that’s coming out soon. There are some slices (lol) of my piece. 
Sorry I’ve been so inactive otherwise. Lots of commissions.

Missing someone isn’t about how long it’s been since you have last seen them or the amount of time it has been since you last talked. It’s about that very moment when you are doing something and you wish that they were right there with you.

Portland Zine Symposium

Who all is gonna be at that tomorrow? 


So on top of working my way through commissions and job hunting I am also APARTMENT hunting…or trying to somewhere in the Portland area to sublet for a while. So far there have been no responses and I’m afraid of wearing out my welcome where I am currently. My mom’s wife is not letting me come home since my mom is stationed in Korea and hard to get in touch with. You know…evil step mother stuff. It’s fun. So if anyone in the area is or knows anyone in the area who is looking to fill a room in a place with public transportation for 400 or less a month, please contact me. 


In Portland looking for jobs! Looking for jobs…iiiin Portland! If you are in Portland and you want to give me job…I am in Portland..looking for jobs!


I have been fighting off some supreme sadness and a lot of terrifying uncertainty lately. Life is hard and whatnot. Anyway, to remind myself that things could be tougher I took a break from commissions to draw a cute thing of myself and my super wonderful, supportive gal.

Update!

So I moved out on the 6th and I have been traveling with my girlfriend for about a week. Road trip and stuff! It would have been cheaper to fly out of Austin and given me more time to afford a ticket. That and I love road trips. So I did manage to get my stuff out and moved across country. Thank you SO much for everyone who re blogged and helped out. I am still taking commissions for what I hope is a brief spell of homelessness as I may be running out of food money soon. But I don’t think I’ll be reblogging the post anymore. For the MOST part I made my goal and I’m very, very grateful! 

So now I’m in Austin for a week or so. And from here I’ll be in Portland and hopefully soon with a job. I’ll try to update with art or at least commission art soon.

I have to move. Whether I can afford it or not, I don’t have a choice! I have to be out in a month. I lost my job a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to find another AND I just spent my last 350 on rent. 8)

Moving is going to be very expensive as I plan to go back to Portland. Staying in Savannah would not only ruin any chances of becoming stable but also my education. I’ve gotten a number of replies about potential jobs in Oregon but the problem is that I’m not there! Long story short…I gotta get there. 

I’d really appreciate whatever help I can get (hopefully for the last time). I also added a donate button to my blog, since every time I do this, I get asks about it. My band also has one TWO songs up on our Bandcamp which you can buy from 1-ANY amount of dollars.

So I’m offering:
Animated Commission: $20

Busts: $25
Full Body: $50

Other Options:
Donation Button
Old Pine Bones music

Contact and paypal: lochimo@gmail.com

Thanks for whatever kind of support I can get!

Hi folks, 

So, first of all thank you for….WOW…300+ hearts. That’s amazing. I really appreciate the support. I’ve just finished..2 of the 6 commissions I’ve received and I have also kindly received a donation. That puts me at $200 dollars of my  $1500 goal. I have to be out in less than three weeks now. Which is really frightening because I still don’t know  where I’ll go now that it’s starting to looking like I might now have to means to get there. 

A few things regarding this post: 
1. I am SO GRATEFUL for the reblogs and SO grateful so many people like my art. A lot of people have been reblogging this with tags llike “Inspiration” (WONDERFUL!) And…”reference” (Yikes). This is still a very active post! Thank you so much for kindly encouraging interested parties. 

2. Building off the same notes- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t…DON’T remove the comment section. There have been several reblogs where the comment section explaining my situation and who I am and even the commission info has been removed for what I’m assumig is aesthetic purposes. This is still an active post. Please don’t do that. 

3. To all the asks asking me about lowering my prices - I’m flattered you’re interested and I understand what it’s like to not be able to afford something you want. But for all of my goals of getting out of here, it’s really so that I can go start a career in a stable place. I can’t afford to lower my prices as they are already SO low.

If you are interested let me know. Contact me. I’d love to hear from you. Thanks again for the support! I hope to hear from more people. 

270/1500 of overall goal 

Thank you everyone for continued support and I’m sorry if my reposting this was the reason for the loss of that handful of followers. I’m still going keep posting this until I can’t anymore.

Gotta be out in 12 days

640/1500 moving fund! 

9 days left.

The last few days has yielded a lot of emails and some more commissions! Thank you so much for all of the support, AGAIN.

I have enough to close my billing accounts and at the very least send my cat home with my roommate, which are HUGE loads off. I can far still NOT afford to do anything about my things and I still have no way of getting home. Luckily, one of my best friends/my band mate is taking me with her on a road trip for a couple of weeks at almost no cost to me (because holy dang she loves me *lays in dirt*) so that will give me time to continue taking these commissions until I have to fly out of Austin, TX. Still not very long but a little extension is better than nothing. 

6/5

Still 640/1500 moving fund!

2 days to be out, a lucky two weeks to find a way home. Last hurrah reblog! Here we go! 

EDIT: A few people have stopped contacting me after many references and much correspondence. I understand if you have lost interest in or cannot order a commission anymore but please email me and let me know so I stop emailing YOU for updates.


Commissions Update

Hello everyone! 

Just checking in so that people who have already commissioned me know that I am alive and stuff. I have to be out of my apartment the day after tomorrow. Essentially, I’m panicking and packing all over the place. 

For those who might still be interested, my commissions are still open. I have not YET found a way home, only a way out of the apartment and a place for my cat to go wait for me. If you’re interested, PLEASE email me at lochimo@gmail.com and there is also a donation button on my tumblr page.
